Summer Dental Student Research Fellowship Program

The Summer Dental Student Research Fellowship Program is designed to give first-year dental students at UCSF the opporunity to have a robust research experience between their first and second years of dental school.  The program has a long and illustrious history at UCSF having proven to be one of the most important mechanisms to fund dental students' introduction to science. For a 3-month period every summer a select number of the best and brightest UCSF dental students participate in an organized program to conduct research on a topic of importance to dentistry.

Working with leaders in science this experience allows students to learn the methods, tools and language of science that, for many, will propel them into careers in academia. This has been such a success that we view this as one of the most important educational programs at UCSF and a powerful talent incubator for our profession. It is truly the start of the pipeline of future leaders of dentistry.
